Not a good week

I suppose it was inevitable. I thought since I had the flu twice last year I would be spared. Of course when you son just covers you with you know what, chances are you are not going to escape it.
My skin feels like it is going to fall off my body. I am shivering so much. So I went to the dr. I am hoping the antibiotics will help.

Just quickly. The two young girls at work decided last week they would search My Space to find me a date. They ended up contacting two men. I just laughed at them and told them how silly they were. Imagine my surprise when the tennis player calls me today. How embarrassing for him to hear me talking like a man. He seemed to cool. He suggested we meet for lunch in two weeks when he comes to Fort Worth to play tennis. I have to keep fishing. I keep hearing that silly line, you have to kiss a bunch of frogs before you find your prince.

I will update tomorrow if I crawl out of bed. I am going to sleep all day.

Maybe, Valentines Day is starting to work for me!!

Yesterday morning I discovered a vase of 12 beautiful red roses on my front porch. But of course there wasn't a name on the card. Finally the "lucky" man confessed last night. I am thinking Danny is a smart man. He is making good decisions regarding me!! I have to admit I would have been disappointed if he did not do something for me. Not to worry now.

And even better, my kid sent me the most beautiful flowers too.
So, I have to retract my bah humbug theory regarding Valentine's Day. At least this year I will.
Bachelorette party tonight. I hear Dick's Last Resort is a fun place to have a party. I'll give an update tomorrow!!!!

It's Valentines Day

Of course today is THE DAY for all of you men to show your woman how much you love them. And let me add, us single women think this day is completely overrated. :)
Kind of like christmas, bah humbug. So what, it is Valentine's Day.
Usually my kid is the only one that remembers me on this day. I'm not going to hold my breathe since he almost forgot my birthday.
Today we will attend Dave DeLeon's funeral. For those of you that don't know, he is Frank Hill's father in law. He has worked at the law firm for several years. He and I had a pretty tight relationship. I am deeply hurt that he is gone. I will miss that old man. That is what I called him when I saw him. He would say "hey babe" and I would come back with "hey old man". I was able to spend some time with him a couple of days before his surgery. I wish treasure that time and am so grateful for it.
A lesson in all of this..... Be careful of your last words with someone. You never know if that is the last time you will see them.
Man update. I know you have been waiting for this. Seems that Danny and I are getting along well. I was hoping he would be able to come by last night. One of the things we have in common is that we still have kids at home. So we both understand if the other can't just get away. And I like going out with him. He makes me smile and laugh. I almost have him convinced he needs to cut out the sodas and candy. I am going to bring him over to the healthy eating side. He is not fat by any means, actually not a bad body for a 51 yr. old man. He offered to start working out with me. That was huge. I was sold on that one. We are supposed to plan an overnight for next weekend somewhere. I'm trying to be creative but am just coming up blank right now. Something will hit me and it will be perfect.
Last of all. Our oil & gas committee had a private signing Tuesday night. All of our hard work and efforts paid off. My signing bonus is just a little over 3,500. Not too bad considering the first offer was 700.00. Yep, I am patting myself on the back. But I promise. After we have our big party to celebrate this, I AM DONE. I am going to concentrate on myself, my home, getting Joe placed and my love life. Maybe not in that order but all of those things.

Just another Thursday

It's been some time since I have updated. This past week or so has been so busy with work and community involvement. Our first oil & gas signings will begin next Wednesday. That will take up so much of my time for at least a month. Most of the committee members will need to babysit these signing parties to answer questions, etc.
The nice thing about this is we requested the oil company have checks in hand for the 12 committee members when we sign next week. Everyone else will get vouchers until title is run on their property. I should have a $3,000 ish check next week. Going to get my kid a bigger laptop and take his smaller one. Then I think I might indulge myself and get a HDTV. Or, if I am smart and sensible I will put it in the bank and save for a rainy day or car troubles.
I've been refinishing two end tables that was part of a living room set that Pat & I bought when we first married. They have been in the attic. Once I refinish them I am going to put tile in the top. I picked that out this past weekend. I must say, they are going to be beautiful. I am quite impressed with myself. I really enjoy doing stuff like that.
Good news. Nolan Ryan is coming to the Rangers. I am so excited about that. Stephen's boss at the ballpark, Dennis worked for Nolan in Round Rock for years. Should be a good year for the Rangers. May have to buy some season tixs.
Guess that is all I have now. Oh, one more thing. A committee member, Pam that lives in my neighborhood has become someone that I think will be fun to hang out with. We worked out together Tuesday. And have plans to start man hunting together. She is quite attractive and lot's of fun. When I first met her she was content with living the way she has been for some time now. I have her thinking a man isn't such a bad idea after all. It should be interesting to see what we come up with.

Superbowl Sunday

I have to admit I am still hurting that my Cowboys are not playing today. I just thought for sure they would be. Stupid Cowboys didn't even make it through round one. After the Cowboys lost I decided I want Green Bay to win. Okay, that didn't happen either. Now I really don't care who wins. I'll just watch football and enjoy it.
The update on the oil & gas "job" is looking very promising. We have two really good offers on the table. I am hoping with all of my hopes this thing wraps up in the next 30 days. This has been more work than booster club. So many phone calls, people coming to my house at all hours. Oh, one exception on the last comment. I was working on my tables that I am going to stain and put tile in the table top yesterday. This fancy sports car show up in front of my house and this rather handsome guy brings me the form he received on his door to join the neighborhood group. We talked for a bit. He is single. OK, that was a positive. I am sure I will be seeing him again. Might even need to give him a call. I am sure there is something he left out when filling out the paperwork. Gotta work it as my friends say. I think I will start with him. :)
Nothing else going on. I had a good birthday. I got LOT'S flowers and cards. Had a wonderful lunch. Wow, 48. I am, well never mind. Can't be old yet. I have too many things I need to take care of first.
